Mystery is surrounding every aspect of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. While we all wait with bated breath for the official trailer, we’re eating up any bit of news we can. Today that came from Entertainment Weekly who shared a picture of the secretive Zorii Bliss (Keri Russell).

In the photo, the rogue is holding up a chip of some sort to someone, likely Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), who has a “complicated” past with her. While we’re unsure what the chip is, we’re taking a guess that it holds very valuable information that will be worth quite a bit. What could the desperate Resistance be searching for? Just how much will it cost them?

Described as “very cool and a little bit shady”, there’s not much known about the character. However her friendship with Dameron may end up being a point of contention for our heroes. Russell said of their relationship “I think the entrance of Zorii is there to describe more of who he was, y’know, in a very intimate way and a familiar way, and the friends are sort of like, ‘What do you mean, you know him?'”

I’m looking forward to Zorii. I hope she plays a relatively large role in the film since they’re building so much mystery around her. It’s likely that she’ll only be a piece of the much larger puzzle of the finale. 

What do you think of the image? Are you looking forward to learning more about her? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Star Wars news.
